the first lady of the united states, michelle obama. as you watched her grow in this role the last four years, what do you think? >> well she has done -- she is a, the most popular person in america just about. she has firmed up the sense of this family as a very responsible family that people can relate to, which was not always going to be obvious. so i think she has had that important role. she has not had the role hillary clinton had of getting involved in public policy. and i wouldn't be surprised -- and this is something she is capable of doing so i wouldn't be surprised over the second term if she drifts more in into that role. more publicly, i think she has had a significant role behind the scenes. >> jill biden has just been introduced to the crowd and taken her place. mark? >> i think it's remarkable, when she started in the campaign in 2008, where the remark about, i've never been more proud of my country, she was attacked and became a political listening rod, and it's been a very conscious, concentrated and effective effort to bring her back to the point where she is a f

state legislature, united states senator, and the president of the united states. obama obviously has to learn all that was required to be president through on the job training. it's possible to conclude, however, observing the weighty legislation passed during his first term that obama is a quick learner. it seems he grappled with the challenges of economic crisis, and the formulation of the stimulus package haltingly. meaning a chance leaning heavily on his economic advisers. the most appropriate comment on the program is that the nation did not falter, that some economic expansion is occurring. the bailout of the automobile industry seems to be a success. the health care legislation frequently lacks presidential leadership and the judgment of most observers, and then final consideration, it is yet to be determined. all this took place with minimal experience. how well is obama beating the six measures of a successful president? he is probably seen as protecting america with the use of drones and special forces killing osama bin laden and members of al qaeda. his withdrawal of troop
